    Grade 10 Math Help

    Hey guys, my math teacher put some stuff on the test that we don't really know. Can I get some referents for different square measurements? 1m squared, 1mi, 1in, 1yd etc

    I suspect that she/he is asking for references .
    But beyond that, I have not the foggiest idea what the question means.

    Re: Grade 10 Math Help

    a referent is a way to imagine the magnitude of the sizes being requested. for instance, if you'd enjoy a referent for a square centimeter, consider the diameter of a pen squared. If you stand about six feet in height, then half yourself (that's about a meter) and square it. A kilometer begins to get a bit tricky to imagine, but again if you do stand that tall, half yourself and multiply by a thousand. Hope this helps
